    Embedded Fiery running windows 8!!

    so i have a spare IC-413 from a C6000 (actually i have 3) and just for fun i cloned my main computer C drive as a backup then i took the clone and plugged it in the Fiery just to see what would happen.
    lo and behold it booted, went into "repairing your PC" then rebooted and then went into "configuring devices" for a little while then much to my surprise the logon screen!
    logged in and while not the fastest PC i ever used (only 2 gig ram) the damn thing works as a regular PC while running Windows 8 Pro.
    i even enabled "Hot Swap" in the BIOS so i can add drives on the fly.
    im going to transplant it eventually into a custom case and probably watercool the CPU.
    just thought i'd post this in case other PC enthusiasts were curious if it would work as a standard PC and not shut off the video during boot (no FACI kit).
    anyway thats all for now, just thought you might get a kick out of this.

    Fun ain't it, been using old fiery's for Win7 pc's, linuxMint, NAS. Now attempting a LinuxCNC box...
    The fan is a bit loud for my appreciation but you can change that.

    Seeing that most of the ex-government machines had them on i have been picking them up here and there.
    The IC's that came of the office color machines comes with a nice case already. A bit on slow side and no boot from USB.
    Whatever

    if you hit f11 at boot you get the boot menu that you can select boot from USB.

    From what I understand, Fiery is a Linux based OS and being that it is, has to run on a standard PC type motherboard.

    IC-413 and a slew of others are windows based as well.
    the IC-409 is linux based and the major difference is the architecture of the MB chipset.
    the 413 happens to be a TYAN workstation MB and is pretty great for a file server and other uses.
    one of my 413s is still running OEM XP embedded and thats what i run my website from.
    there was a BIOS upgrade for the 1.11 ver of Fiery which allows 64 bit windows 7 to run.
    i just kicked it up to win8 on a whim and seems to be stable so far.
    the BIOS helps determine what OS is permitted to run
    this is the motherboard...TYAN(R) Computer - Motherboards S5247 S5247G2NR

    Go and get one of these Pontiac Firebird cars. Drive it like a stolen.
    Should be enough to cure your obsession.

    had a 67 firebird, racked up close to 20 DMV points, and lost my license 3 times because of that car.
